Plein Air: Sketching Provincetown with Aaron Michael Thompson

Students will record their observations in sketchbook form on daily outings to significant sites. Provincetown is rich historically and visually, providing a host of plein-air subjects ideal for improving drawing and watercolor techniques. Students will also learn consolidation of materials for a variety of travel processes making travel and sketchbook more manageable. The concentration required in drawing directly from observation leads to a deeper understanding of Provincetown’s forms and rich cultural history.

Aaron Michael Thompson is a full-time Professor at the Pennsylvania College of Art and Design.

He is also one of Gamblin Artist Colors Educational Representatives and has given lectures on color at Museums and Institutions of Higher Education for seven years. He received his M.F.A. from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts and his B.F.A. from Savannah College of Art and Design. He was recently published in Observational Drawing, and among his most recent awards include the Premier Coup Award from the a national juried exhibition, the Nude, at the Wayne Art Center and the Barnes Artist residency in Umbria, Italy.
